On tap at Cloverleaf. Not sure about the cream part. More like a hoppy amber with some pumpkin spicy. Tasty. But not what you picture when you hear pumpkin cream.

On tap at the brewery. Beautiful hazy orange pour with a white head. Aroma is pumpkin, hoppy, a bit spicy but not pie-like. Flavor is ok. Creamy with a bit to much bitterness. I'm not sure if it's hops or something else? Good but mouthfeel is a little harsh.

Clean aroma, faint orange notes, but not much else in the nose. Flavor highlights a tangy hop bittnerness, spicy peppercorns, and light hints of ginger as the beer warms. Canít taste any pumpkin, but the beer is enjoyable nonetheless.

Very little pumpkin influence here. Almost Belgiany in the richness of the golden malts. Interesting, but not quite what I was looking for. Needs more flavor for such a high ABV pumpkin beer. Bonus points for at least attempting to do something different with this style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Growler shared on opening Sunday by my brother-in-law. Poured a hazy light orange body with a large frothy white head that left lots of lace. Aroma wasw very very slight pumpkin over dry toast. Medium to slightly full bodied that had average carbonation and finished rather dry. Flavor was odd, dry toast, roasty pumpkin meat, dry bitter hops. Not sure if I liked this or not but would drink again.

Growler at Dmacís opening football Sunday. Pours out a moderately clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma is of creamy cereal notes, light spices, slightly reminiscent of pumpkin, but not totally. Taste is cinnamon, light creamy malts, mild hops, some brown sugar and nutmeg.
